when it was bush and al gore. when they signed off that night, nobody talked about al gore signing. the story was bush had great debat debates. in 1984 with reagan sxhoand mon, and people said reagan won. the story was reagan blanked out during the debate and he's 79 years old. >> the sign, i can imagine if it happened today, twitter would pick up on it and it would part of the media conversation almost immediately. i wonder if the response is speeded up over the years. >> i'm sure that has something to do with. >> jonathan, i got to ask. you got a little thing for joe biden? explain your piece in politico today about joe biden being sexy. >> we asked the question about whether joe biden is sexy, and it's asked in this context. is he bringing sexy back to the medicare set? basically joe biden has been out on the campaign trail and he flirts a lot. the people that take the best to it are women in 50s, 60, 70. >> i take to it jonathan. >> it works for krystal. >> even younger than that. you're 24, 25, right? >> thank you, thank you. >> we're constantly seeing these pictures with the
forward to 1982. george h.w. bush was on the ropes over bill clinton when casper weinberger was imply indicated in the iran/contra scandal shortly before election day. bad news for bush that he did not need. in 2004 a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th just four days before election day in a raz orthin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11 it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year though most have centered around foreign policy others have been about the economy like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact it has to feed into a narrative that already exist, whether it's carter's ineffectiveness or questions about mccain's credentials on the economy. >> it's not so much that suddenly eure
? he hasn't differentiated from george bush's. and his plans lack specifics. in a one-on-one debate, candidates have a lot of control over how aggressive they are. both romney and the president are inexperienced in a one-on-one debate format. few details on the format. the president and romney will be at podiums, standing, not sitting, and there will be no basic time limits on their answers. it's not 90 seconds, buzzer, things like that. it's up to the discretion of the moderator, jim leierer. that's going to be up to him. but there's supposed to be a lot of leeway here over how long the conversations go. the debate is on domestic policy. 90 minutes is supposed to be devoted to the economy specifically with governing and health care. but we'll see if the general nature of those areas allows libya to come up, which we know the romney folks want to do. debates are as much about style as substance and this is a reality show where obama and romney will meet in the first time in nearly five years before their biggest audience of the campaign. the first 2008 presidential debate between th
the debates were first televised the first rule is appearances count. nixon should have shaved. al bush shouldn't have sighed. and the camera never blinks. challengers can benefit just by being on the stage with an incumbent president. >> are you better off than you were four years ago? >> reporter: it helps to have a well rehearsed one-liner. >> governor, there you go again. >> reporter: most memorably, lloyd bentsen's takedown of dan quayle in 1988. >> jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. >> reporter: but beware that deer in the head lights moment when a candidate forgets he's expected to be human. >> governor, if kitty dukakis were raped and murdered, would you favor an irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't, bernard. >> i feel sorry for these candidates because there's a bunch of people sitting around a room right now telling them to do ten impossible things and then at the end saying be yourself. >> reporter: and if you lose the first round you can recover at the next match with a well executed zinger. >> i am not going to exploit fo
? how long? >> greg: the other question when you talk of consistency is in the media. bush years the media was antiwar. now it's not bush's war so it's quiet. >> andrea: bush went to congress to get approval. remember nixon was criticized going to cambodia. everyone blasted him and blasted bush. at least saddam hussein had a trial. where are the liberals speaking out on that? >> eric: last thought, is president obama succeeding or failing in foreign policy? >> bob: succeeding. >> eric: that's what i thought. latest on libya, was it coverup or incompetence? is the president leading from the talk show couch? >> the annual u.n. media where rogue nations are calling for a new world order. obama snub key allies and skipped meetings with world leaders so he could be on tv. >> we brought cloth napkins as well. i want to be eye candy here. >> eric: new ad calls out obama for gabbing with the gals of "the view" instead of the intel people. dana is on deck next. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> dana: new ad by the super pac american crossroad look at obama's foreign affairs and preoccupation bei
. the media, do you remember them saying, the declared winner is this guy. they said george bush was the winner of the al gore debate, wrong again, bob. eight out of the last nine presidential debates, gore-bush, bush-kerry obama-mccain won by the democrats. they were polled right after the debates the american people every single time. well eight out of nine, hey you know what, the democrat is the clear winner. so you never see that in the media. oh, my god, i got to be neutral so i'm going to ignore the facts and be neutral. i don't think that would help mitt romney's cause. god for bid if you looked at his promise, they're horrible. riddled with factual problems. so what in the world should mitt romney do? he's this far behind. he doesn't have the facts on his side. his programs sucks. his party is unpopular. let's do a fun exercise here. i'm going to tell what you i would do if i were romney. now, since mitt romney can't really defend his own position, his tax plan is a gigantic win for the rich. he doesn't care about 47% of the country, and the list goes on and on. i would g
, but so were the other tax cuts by george bush. the middle class needs champions who are just as vehemently as those who serve the top 1%. unleashed. joy behar. >> on my next show, i'll get into cohen to dish on all 36 current housewives, and still have time left over for bethany. >> eliot: with things looking bleak for mitt romney, the campaign is in need of a new strategy. some of the romney camp sees an opening. as written in the wall street journal. the biggest calamity for obama of course, the administration handling of the tragic attack after two weeks of tiptoe around a definitive answer, they released a statement saying that the attacks in libya from deliberate organized attacks carried out by extremists. >> intelligence community put out a lengthy document that explained the timeline here. i think in the days afterwards it was not clear that this was a terrorist attack as their investigation was conducted and they got more information. that's a determination that they made. >> eliot: some romney advisers think this is an area of weakness of obama upon which they shou
with george h. w. bush and bill clinton. >> ross gave a good answer but i have to respond directly to mr. bush. you the question my patriotism. you even brought some white ring congressman out of the war white house to attack me. i honor your service in world war two. i honor mr. perot's service in uniform and every other man and woman who ever served. when joe mccarthy went around this country attacking people's patriotism, he was wrong. a senator from connecticut stood up to him named prescott bush, your father was right to stand up to joe mccarthy and you were wrong to attack my patriotism. i was opposed the war but i love my country and in need a president that will bring this country together and not divided. i want to bake a unified country. [applause] >> i did not question the man's patriotism, i questioned his judgment and character. what he did in moscow was fine and he explained it and i excepted. i don't accept organizing demonstrations and a foreign country when your country is at war. i'm sorry, i cannot accept that. >> all of that debate is on our video library at c-span.org. you
the debate over the bush era tax cut. we also have a series of taxes called the alternative minimum tax, preventing many families and a of from falling into what is a surprise second tax systems. about 20 more american -- 20 million more american families will fall into the amt. there are individuals that have been, -- become known as the extenders. i generally refer to them as the expires since they are set to expire. but in washington get to be known as the extenders. in 2010, there was a revised version of what the estate tax looks like. that expires at the end of the year. in 2009, president obama took office and the stimulus act included new credits that were primarily focused on low-income families, also those with kids in college. those were extended through 2010 and expire at the end of the year. in addition to all of those expiring tax cuts from a fiscal and economic point of view and everything we have more including the 2010 health reform act. when you look at debate over the fiscal cliff, there is actually a very diverse array of tax discussion. at the low end of the income
of the bush era taxes, payroll tax holiday hikes and invested in come also. a new tax policies and to report says nothing is done. average marginal tax rates would go up by five percentage points on labor income, seven points on capital gains and more than 20 points on dividends. along with more than a trillion dollars in budget cuts. also starting january or known as the fiscal cliff. it should get under way in just a moment. [inaudible conversations] >> good afternoon, and welcome to the urban institute's first tuesday. my name is howard gleckman of the tax center blocks and we are here to discuss taxes in the fiscal cliff. as you all know, washington lives everything that happens here is the biggest or the worst were the most important. how many times for instance have you been told some politician is about to give the speech of his life until he gives the next speech. the tax armageddon has the potential to actually be a watershed in the fiscal policy. true it could be another opportunity to kick the proverbial can down the road, yet paring over the of this could also be a tipping point
. >> if a president of either party, i don't care whether it was jimmy carter or bill clinton or george bush or ronald reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will be said. >> with us now is mr. caddell. so you think this is an organized press suppression of this story? >> well, organized -- whether it's organized is a straight conspiracy, everyone is in on it and doing it and it's a purposeful conscious effort to suppress news that might help obama. we have gone down a slippery slope here. look, bill, we have had liberal bias or bias in the press for a long time. for many years. but it's gotten worse starting in 2008. now we have a press that actively engages in the re-election. putting out a narrative that romney is a loser, you know running polls, they are using like telling n.i.v. adding on romn
obama or president bush or going further back, done as much as they could on china? maybe not. but it is an extremely difficult challenge. i imagine if the president was extremely tough on china, republicans would be out there beating him up. >>neil: you find tough talk and trade talk especially in key swing states like ohio isn't, just, coincidence? >>guest: it is as much coincidence as governor romney talked about ohio. this is interesting --. >>neil: you had this interest in three or four years as president to go after chinese where the concentration in the last few months of trade sanctions? >>guest: why being so cynical, neil? when you look back what the president has done on trade, he has taken a more balanced approach. he has been for trade. he understands, also, the consequences and the implication of a trade conflict with china. look at the other side, manufacturing jobs in terms of democrat the of the recession have grown. when you look at governor romney's record on china, it is tough to take his words with any credibility. >>neil: all their stuff is made in chinese
h.w. bush was already on the ropes against bill clinton over a sluggish economy, when casper wineberger, former president ronald reagan's defense secretary, was implicated in the iran contrascandal shortly before election day. bad news that bush, who served as reagan's vice president, did not need. in 2004, a classic october surprise. osama bin laden released a video on october 29th, just four days before election day in a razor-thin race between president bush and john kerry. three years after 9/11, it served as a reminder of the terrorist threat and strategists in both parties believed helped president bush. more recently the term october surprise has come to mean a seismic event in the fall of an election year. though most have centered around foreign policy, others have been about the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisors say his campaign collapsed along with it and never recovered. historians say in order for an october surprise to have a real 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether it's carter's i

partially? >> they still have to figure it out. there are some bush administration tax cuts all the way through the obama administration. what they're going to do is figure out they will renew some of them, let them expire. bottom line -- we will all feel the pain, it's just a question of how much. >> will be interesting to see if they discuss that in the debate might. revenue this year, down load our election 2012 app to see the latest campaign pictures and follette updates during tonight's debate. search commitment 2012 on your smartphone and tablets a day. >> the death of a man who died in police custody has been ruled a homicide. >> please note confirming what we have heard about the death of anthony anderson. will the officers involved be charged? >> he died 10 days ago after being arrested by city police in east baltimore. he initially reported he may have choked on drugs he had shot in his mouth during the rest. the autopsy concluded die from blunt force trauma, maybe kick door slammed to the ground. he suffered broken ribs and a ruptured spleen caused him to bleed to death inter
black and johnson and it's been fractious before, but not for the last couple of years since bush v gore. >> eliot: which was a moment of tension and personal eveninginess among the justices. the cases this term as they always are uniquely important. affirmative action, something that is a staple to admissions to higher institutions under gradual assault until finally it is finally eliminateed. >> it is a possibility. and it's a hugely important case, as you say. at least four justices and really justice kennedy is the fifth who have expressed strong skepticism towards it. they question the landmark of cases from 1978 and 2003 allowing universities to use affirmative action, and they could pull the trigger here. it's possible they could come up with a narrower ruling. the issue is the university of texas having decided to admit graduates from the top ten percent from every texas high school can in addition to that once you pick the 10% plan to pick up your numbers of minorities you can't use the additional preference, there might be the vote to do the whole thing. >> eliot: something th
gains -- get this wait for it -- in almost two decades. since 2000 when president bush came into office, the manufacturing sector went into a steep slide, but since 2010, that slide has turned around. the president has record on manufacturing jobs since president clinton. and he noted as much during his dnc speech. >> and after a decade of decline, this country created over half a million manufacturing jobs in the last two and a half years. >> jennifer: now in polititfacts rated that statement by president clinton as true. mitt romney's own plan would cost 800,000 u.s. jobs according to the study for american progress. the corporate tax cuts would cost the u.s., according to that study, nearly $1 trillion. all right. now the third debate topic, and the third myth that is -- we are debunking here health you will hear this over and over again. you have heard it. the memo reads $716 billion will be raided from medicare to pay for obamacare. now this is the same raiding medicare lie that romney has been pushing since august. >> romney: the president's plan cu
to the other guy. the democrats were in control for four years, two under bush and two under obama, yet it was all bush's fault and nobody takes responsibility. that's the problem. the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents, it's maybe not in this election, but if they don't get this country straightened out and get the economy straightened out, but just take one election in two years, if it's not better, get rid of every one of them and they will finally get the message. host: let's look at some national news stories. this story from the new york times -- and this other story in the times -- looking at other international news stories on long lines of what our last caller was talking about, whether international news is getting attention. and this in the washington post -- the debate tomorrow night will focus on domestic issues. what would you be listening for? if you're not going to watch, why? monty writes -- in new orleans on the republican line, eustice. caller: good morning. i don't know how anything can change. romney would have to come up w
they are worried that their business could suffer because of over-regulation and the end bush-era tax cuts next year. and as diane eastabrook reports, that could mean fewer jobs in an industry that has been a bright spot in the u.s. economy. >> reporter: last year, bison gear and engineering was firing on all cylinders. sales of gears and motors to restaurant, packaging and health care equipment companies were up 20%. business was so good, the company added 17 full-time jobs to the more than 200 it already had. then this spring, something happened. >> the air just kind of went out of the soufflÉ on our sales to our original equipment manufacturers. >> reporter: what's happening at bison gear appears to be happening at other manufacturers, as well. of the 900 firms recently surveyed by business consultant mcgladrey, 39% thought tir businesses were thriving and growing versus 45% last year. there was also a slight up-tick in the percentage of companies who think business is declining. some of the increased pessimism is attributed to slow growth in europe and china. but mcgladrey's karen kurek sa
of the united states. >> reporter: the vice president later said that the middle class pain was due to bush policiepol. the debate symbolizes a problem for the president. the economic collapse happened under bush, but four years later, families are still hurting. many in the middle class are barely treading water. all fodder for tomorrow night's debate in denver. the first lady is make her way there. first she stopped in ohio. where early voting began today. >> are we going sit back and watch everything we worked for and fought for to just slip way? >> reporter: ann romney got to colorado before her. >> we have a debate comes up. we're excited about that. we're focused. >> reporter: family members' nerves are on edge, as josh romney confided to diane in august. >> i hate the debates. trying to sit there and be cool and keep a smile on your face. inside you want to fall down. >> reporter: four years ago, michelle obama got so nervous in the debates, she didn't like to watch them. she'll be there tomorrow in the debate hall. we turn to david muir who is there. >> reporter: hey, jake. tonight,
against george w. bush in 2004. the reason the obama campaign is working so hard to play down expectations is because they like the trajectory of the race right now and don't want to do anything to change that. norah and charlie? >> no doubt. nancy cordes, thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate. any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. and both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say. but, you know, coming from you, you know, in the past threaten extinction for north korea and sung songs about bombing iran, i don't know how credible that is. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough. >> thank you. i appreciate that. >> mr. speaker, i know that sounds like an enormous revelation, but have you checked your own investments? you also have investments with mutual funds that also invest in fanny mae and freddie mac. >> right. >> rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks, $10,000 bet? >> i'm not
he was trying to say is that the middle class was buried urntd george w. bush and that's what started the problems for the middle class and that the obama administration has started to pull it out by its boot straps. and so the obama campaign just in case we didn't get that has a statement that says that the romney campaign is taking this entirely out of context. it's obviously in looking at the full transcript that joe biden was talking about the fact that the middle class was buried under failed bush policies. and of course they say romney/ryan would change all that. however, this is an opportunity, which the romney campaign is taking to say, you know what, we agree with you. the middle class has been buried and we're going to change that. imagine this as kind of the dry season in the west in the summer. and any match or any lightning strike is going to start a huge fire. and that's what's going on here the closer we get to the election. >> this is coming a day before the debate. how detrimental could this be for the obama campaign? >> i'm sure the obama campaign is thinking this is
the debates against george w. bush. he had a reputation as a strong debater. his body language was off, he was condescending to bush. bush was surprisingly well performed and personable. you had the bush campaign take advantage of some mistakes that gore made in the debate. and they really drove a story. cheney beat lieberman in the vice presidential debates. all those things came together and political scientists call it a wave effect. cause out with bush ahead a few points. >> couldn't you just say for an idiot, he was surprisingly well inform informed in say what you're feeling. >> i've never thought bush was an idiot. >> why would you say surprisingly well informed? he was governor for -- he had a higher grade point average than al gore. >> because bush had a reputation -- >> with who? >> among people who cover him and among-mf. >> the media, you mean? >> a significant portion of the american people. >> i'm playing with you. i read what you tweeted, that you're ready for some debating with morning joe and at squawk. so you know this is fun, this what -- and i know exactly what you're s
. he was the republican party nominee for senator from louisiana and president george h. w. bush was forced to come out and tell voters to vote for the democrat. i want to see mitt romney's feet put to the fire in much the same way. either cut this guy loose or defend him but mitt romney has to choose one. this new piece of audio is more damaging. this is a few months old. this is a piece of oughtio from a town hall meeting that congressman akin had. and an older male voter got up and asked him why he would oppose the lilly ledbetter act which promoted fair pay for women. todd akin's response is something that i think rand paul could have done more artfully but essentially, it's pretty much the most friendly endorsement of legal discrimination you will ever hear. let's listen. >> i believe in free enterprise. i think it is about freedom. if somebody wants to hire somebody and they agree on a salary. that's fine. however it wants to work. so the government sticking its nose in is a huge problem. >> john: the g
, it was kerry in '04, he gained three or four points on bush after those debates and it was bush against gore in 2000 who gained points mostly because gore was unlikable. in neither case was there a sort of there you go again type zinger and frankly, the idea of mitt romney, mr. phony, delivering some kind of canned zinger, that's exactly the wrong strategy and i suspect this is just misdirection by the romney campaign. >> i love that ross just called mitt romney mr. phony. i'm done. thank you, ross. >> he just zinged you. very interesting. i will leave you to squabble over the "new york times" newsroom floor. thank you very much indeed. >>> tomorrow night, i sit down with arnold schwarzenegger. you watched the "60 minutes" interview but are left with unanswered questions. so was i so i asked them. arnold schwarzenegger tells all. a pretty moving interview. >>> coming up, a woman who says there are misconceptions about mormons. i will talk to one of the most famous mormons in the world, marie osmond. up. a short word that's a tall order. up your game. up the ante. and if you stumble, you get
ready, shovels hitting the ground, and a net loss of jobs in the time he's been president. george bush is unpatriotic and irresponsible, $14 trillion in debt, eight years. he's got $6 trillion and said he cut the deficit in half in his first term. he's not been asked the simple basic questions by anybody. how did we get to -- >> except by univision. >> sean: one example. >> they haven't even hit him on the outright lie about libya. another anticipated obama argument, this crisis was caused by two wars and push tax cuts. that's so easily refuted. 2007, $161 billion deficit with two wars raging and bush tax cuts implemented in 2003. what romney really needs to do, though, is stress the urgency. none of this john mccain, obama will make a fine president. no. if obama is re-elected, this country is over as we know it. >> yeah. >> he needs to stay that in no uncertain terms. i say this, not because i'm a partisan, i'm scared to death of our lifetime earnings being in jeopardied, i'm scared to death of our liberty, of our prosperity. the american dream is gone. he doesn't believe in opportun
